S17 - Don't Bite the Horse Hand

Characters: Artemis, Cassius, Krato, Skender, Norma, Dusty, Estelle and Minor 

  • We are in a orb of air going deep under the ocean. 
  • Krato and Cassius look over their bodies after what happened, and near their stomach areas, the healing job wasn't finished. There's a hole through both of them that has a swirling mass of purple energy.  
  • Norma tries to heal Josh, but he takes damage from the heal since he's an undead creature. She casts inflict wounds, which heals him again.  
  • Hidden in the depths of the ocean, an underwater city. Shimmering coral and iridescent pearl. The water guardian shows the point of entry. We can see aquatic elves and tritans.  
  • We happen upon two men having an argument. They're outside of a shop, on a sidewalk. One looks clean and proper, with attire to suggest he's an honest shopkeeper. The other is hunched down, wearing disheveled clothing and is dirty.  
  • The finer man sees us walking closer and is relieved. "Adventurers, thank god! The guards around here don't do anything." He asks us to get this man to stop begging outside of his shop. The disheveled man is named Kritus. 
  • We are Kritus with us, after the shopkeeper offers us money. We don't take his money. 
  • When we attempt to give Kritus money, his hand and surroundings disappear. The city has long been abandoned. There's no one here.  
  • Booming over the city, the guardian says "The trials have already begun. Come to the centre temple when you want to continue."  
  • The city is beautiful, pristine and perfect. It's empty.  
  • We long rest in one of the rooms we find. 
  • We're in a coral castle. On the wall, there's an inscription.  
  • Right before we enter the temple, the water guardian says we passed the trial of virtue. 
  • Strike this fork upon the ground, many times it will echo round. Different squares hear a different beat, find which tiles house defeat.  
  • A tuning fork hangs from the wall, 2 feet in length.  
  • Trail of perseverance we passed. We get to the other side of the minesweeper map safely. 
  • As we're walking down a hallway, we lose sight of our party members. 
  • Cassius gets taken to see his parents. His last name is Bologna lmao. His parents kicked him out after he chose to study "that magic." Now he's dying from something he wanted to study.  
  • We each see our worst fears I think? 
  • Krato sees a cutie spider 
  • Minor is in a room with all of his party members telling him he's not useful 
  • Norma is in a room of solitude, in the dark 
  • Skender sees other Dragonborn, saying "why didn't you save us?" "why did you leave your post?" 
  • Dusty sees Krum with a dagger in his stomach 
  • I see a spider that's in pain, neither friend nor foe. It has a purple aura, and when I hug it I start to get infected.  
  • We all conquer our fears, and we all appear back in the hallway together. We passed the trial of courage. 
  • A new trial appears. We pass through a wooden door, and there's a huge glass dome and we can see the water above us. We're in a coliseum. The water guardian is standing on the opposite wall. He's smaller, 10ft x 10ft. As we approach, the door behind us closes. 
  • The final challenge is him, and ourselves. Prepare yourself for combat!
